Why?


Recommended Posts

Dont mind on my english, i hope you understand my point.

Anyone knows really why Gn'R plays all song in another affination? I mean, when you play their songs on the piano, or guitar, you have to put your instrument a tone down.

Does anyone know why???

Well a couple of reasons i know of

1 - It gives a heavier sound

2 - It makes guitarists who use thicker gauge strings able to play easier

3 - It takes the strain off the singers voice a little if they sing really high

I get my band to tune 1/2 a step down because of reasons 1 and 3

you nailed it on #3

axl can't hit the notes unless they are tuned flat

i tried to get my band to tune down but their lazy pricks

i think they were inspired by thin lizzy and those 70s bands which did it because of your first reason

axl still can't hit the tuned down Ab on sweet child like he does on the studio version when he sings it live <_<
